Neurotic backfire

For TTs, this tends to happen after an extreme case of deepsock-dominant splitting, but it can happen to any person disposed to pathological conscientiousness. Conscientiousness could be summarized as a personality trait characterized by a “tendency to adhere to a set of rules, whether they be social, legal, ideological, personal, or religious.” When this adherence to rules becomes pathological and compulsive, we call it “neuroses”.

A neurotic backfire occurs when the discomfort of trying to follow an accepted system of rules outweighs the discomfort of throwing the entire system away and starting from scratch. An archetypal myth for this is the patriot (usually a soldier, agent, or reporter) who can’t handle the cognitive dissonance caused by following orders, and ends up going rogue. Edward Snowden is a good real-life example.

The opposite case is when a person holds true to their system of rules to the point of complete self-destruction (this is not the same as ordinary “burnout”, which is fairly common and occurs for a different reason). Ted Kaczinsky is a good example of this alternative of complete self-destruction.

    I was just thinking about Saint Ted. That’s not the first highly unlikely coincidence that’s happened to me in the past week, either.

    Ted was far more rational than the average “sane” person, and he really didn’t do anything wrong other than commit ineffective terrorism.

    Lets say that primitive* hunter-gatherer societies are in a state of emotional equilibrium. You need to disrupt this equilibrium and make them more unhappy/anxious in order to motivate them to accumulate the excess resources necessary to support people not involved in food production. You need to make them even more anxious in order to get them to accumulate the savings and capital necessary to support industry and technological progress. Consequently the most anxious peoples on this planet are also the richest.

    *However, it must be kept in mind that Aryan peoples were never primitive, but primordial, and also that Germanic “tribes” were nothing like the tribes current anthropologists study.

      The basic reason why so many people are leftists today is because one of the easiest ways to control people is to make them unhappy/anxious/scared, and then to withhold relief from these conditions. They think that if you get rid of whoever currently has power then nobody will have to be unhappy. This basic thought process is ubiquitous.

      Ideologically, don’t have a problem with other people suffering, because “Blood alone moves the wheels of history.” Just like Uncle Wolf said, leftists basically have a problem with the struggle for survival that has made different peoples great. Personally, I don’t want to struggle; I just want to rent-seek. However, I don’t think most people should be able to do that, only special people like myself.

        Oh, and you, of course. You should start a Kickstarter titled “Help Aeoli Become a Part of the Rentier Class,” with a goal of $100 million in 30 days.

          Of course.

          I could manage with 250K, I think.

        I wonder if this finally explains the ritual massacres practiced by occultists.

        When Kentaro Miura dreamed up Berserk, he said that what came into his mind first was the character of Gatts, and the story merely followed as a rationalization for how such a person could exist. Hence the feast of the eclipse.

      That sounds about right, although I think you’re missing some necessary conditions. Anxiety alone won’t do it, but it is extremely important, and accounts for a great deal of conscientiousness.

    To give you an idea of the level of synchronicity here, I just checked your blog today because I wanted to make a comment referencing Ted. A couple days ago, I was reading a summary of The Belarus Secret, and then the same afternoon I found a copy of it in a thrift store. In a couple of my lucid dreams I have had the ability to manipulate what I find on thrift store shelves, which is probably the most jewy ability ever.
